Twist for 7 WSM ?

Looking into a barrel for a 7 WSM to shoot 162 A-max or 175 SMK? Did some searching and can't decide between an 8 or 9 twist.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    9 twist is all you need. Will work from 120's to 180 grain bergers.

    +1 on the 9 twist. I have a 9.5 twist that stabilizes the 175's at 1K. But I think I will go 9 on the next one.
